Marisole Monday: Sugar and Spice Version 2.0

So, yesterday, I had a Sweet Lolita paper doll and today we have a Gothic Lolita version of the same doll. Once again, you’ll want to slit along the dotted line on her hair, so she can wear the bows and hat and other hair accessories. Hair accessories seem to be very important in the whole Lolita thing. I openly confess to not being an expert, but I did my best. You can check out the Sweet Lolita paper doll for the list of sources I used.

While I was researching Lolita fashion, I did find this cute paper doll by Ninipowwaa on Deviant Art. She also has her own blog which I can’t read, cause I think it’s in French. In high school, when most people I knew were failing to learn French, I was busy failing to learn Spanish. I love how she colored the paper doll. Someday, I might actually try to shade Marisole. I mean… not in the near future, but it could happen.

And, I should say, doing two different color schemes was really actually difficult. Don’t expect it to become a theme, but by the time I realized how long it was taking me to recolor the whole set, I’d already gotten so far along that I wasn’t stopping. I don’t think I’ll be doing Lolita fashion again in the future for the paper dolls unless I get lots of requests and start to feel guilty. I have a very well developed sense of guilt.


  1. I must confess, am not overly into Lolita either, but I wanted to draw something with lots of detail and that seemed to qualify. You’re right about the Mary Magdalene stuff. It’s more my style. A little more subdued.

  2. I may mix and match them a little. I think I like the Sweet Lolita the best though. While I do actually like this style my favorite thing about this blog/you is that it’s not all the same. Some artists do only historical for example. I like that you do some of everything, I also like that you do them all well. Can’t wait to see what you draw next.

  3. I love those sets! Both of them!
    Althought I´d love to have a totally uncolored drawing too!

    LMAO I want ALL of these clothes for my own !
    Classic Lolita is great too!
    For more inspiration, my favorite Brand:
    I really like your page!
    Greetings to you.

  4. Hola, solo quería decirte que me encanta tu trabajo, eres grandiosa. Me gustan mucho todas las muñecas de papel y la ropa que has diseñado. Espero poder ganar algún día uno de tus concursos. Saludos desde México.

    According to what I’ve just read you learned some Spanish, I hope you can understand what I wrote, but just in case here’s the translation.

    Hey there, I just wanted to say that I love your work, you’re amazing. I really like all the paper dolls and the outfits you’ve designed. I hope I can win one of your contest some day. Greetings from Mexico.

    1. Yo estudié español en la secundaria y la universidad, pero yo no hablo muy bien el idioma. Estoy muy contento de que te guste mi arte.

      And that is about as much Spanish as I can write on any given topic. 🙂
